Despite Ed Sheeran’s fame, his love life remains a source of mystery and scrutiny. The singer-songwriter is known for writing and performing beautiful romantic songs that he bases on real life experiences.

Getting to the squad:

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the singer, 26, revealed he had slept with several members of Taylor Swift’s famous circle of friends, also known as her squad. Sheeran became friends with Swift after he supported her on her 2013 Red world tour, and admitted that he’d wake up and wonder how he’d been able to get there.

He said: ““I was this 22-year-old awkward British kid going on tour with the biggest artist in America, who has all these famous mates.”

The musician is currently dating his high-school sweetheart Cherry Seaborn. He refused to name who among Swift’s famous friends he had slept with. The “squad” at the time included actresses Selena Gomez, Hailee Steinfeld, Lena Dunham, singer Lorde and models Cara Delevinge, Lily Aldrige and Martha Hunt.

However, despite all the rumors flying at the time, Sheeran insists that he and Swift didn’t date. “There wasn’t any truth to it whatsoever,” he said “I found that aspect quite lazy journalism.”

Success in the music business:

Sheeran’s current album “Divide” is a chart topping smash hit. He has also written songs for several other artists, including One Direction and Justin Bieber.

The singer is currently putting together a boy band. He is auditioning members with the intentions of taking them on tour with him, saying: “I’m gonna put three or four boys together and do all the songs, [and] take them on the stadium tour with me.”
